Placement Starts Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is a big day for me. It is the first day of my Professional Placement One, which is at School E. I will be at this school for two half weeks and six full weeks on the trot. During this placement I am expected to teach a 50% timetable all by myself. This is quite a big leap from where I am at the moment.

The actual teaching doesn't scare me that much. Here is a list of the things I am scared of with regards to PP1:

-Getting lost in the school (I have zero sense of direction)

-Talking to staff whom I'm intimidated by

-Eating lunch in the staffroom (staffrooms are scary places)

-Being rubbish in general

Now to make my blog seem a little more positive I'm going to list the things I'm excited about:

-Doing some actual real teaching

-Getting to know the pupils

-Making some teacher friends

-Possibly getting involved with the school play

I probably won't be blogging as much once my PP1 gets into full swing. I can't divulge details about the school anyway, so I think I'll just be doing a weekly post about my professional and personal development.

Good luck everyone who's starting their placements tomorrow!
